7 Worst Foods With Prediabetes
2. Fruit Juice
While fruit is the best option for sweetness, drinking it in juice form is not healthy. This is because the juice contains all of the sugar in the fruit, but no fiber. Sugar is also more concentrated in the juice than in whole fruits. The result of drinking juice is a dizzying blood sugar level.
Fruit juice also does not tend to make you feel as full as whole fruits (fiber plays a big role in satiety). This can cause you to overeat or just forget those sugary calories when planning your next meal. To enjoy the fruit taste without overdoing the sugar, try sparkling water and some juice.
